Unhappy Horse With Lumps On Body And Neck

Hi I have a horse and in the past two weeks she has come out in lumps three times! The first time it took a while for them to go down so the vet gave an anti-inflamatory,the next two times they had gone down in less than 12 hours .There are like a mini golf ball cut in half on the skin !(like a semi circle).Was wondering wheter they are some sort of bites or allergy.

I was grooming her tonight and I noticed them but then maybe half an hour later they seemed to have gone down!I had thought it was the feed I was feeding cool 'n' cooked but then I changed to beet pulp and no difference.And thought it was crib oil from her wood chewing but we removed the crib oil and no difference.

Your help would be greatly appreciated!!!

She's breaking out in hives in reaction to something. As you found out finding that something can be difficult. Horses can react to things that never bothered them before as well as new things.
I've been down that road many times. Besides allergy testing you could try watching her closely, keeping a record of what she does, eats, touches, etc. & seeing how it relates to the outbreak of hives.
Sometimes we never know. Good luck.

Our mare Cinnamon gets them from time to time, so many sometimes that she looks like a pin cushion. Sometimes they go away in a few hours, sometimes a day. I've never found out for sure, but I'm fairly certain it's some bug bite or sting (perhaps ants) that she gets when laying down.
BTW, seems to me that the bugs like the sorrel horses the best.
